Top 5 Best Affordable Makeup (Priceline Australia)

best affordable makeup

In light of the Priceline Cosmetics sale event, I’ve compiled a list of my top 5 best affordable makeup picks that are available at Priceline! I’ve listed out all of my favorites on my Priceline Makeup Favorites post to help you decide what to get during the sale.

I’ve written a Top 10 Best Drugstore Makeup post before, but I’ve discovered so many new favorites over the past two years that my top favorites have changed. I’m not saying I don’t like the products I mentioned in that post anymore, I just have newer products that I’ve been using more of.

This was soooo hard but after a lot of thought and consideration, here are my current picks for best affordable makeup!

Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon

I’ve reviewed the whole range here. These are creamy, ultra pigmented, and so long-wearing they could withstand food and drinks so well. My favorite color is actually a mixture of Niagara Overlook and Hawaiian Smolder! I also love Redwood Forest!

Covergirl truBLEND Blush

I’ve reviewed the whole range, including the bronzer, here. My favorite shade is Medium because it is so neutral toned that it works with all makeup looks! This is, hands down, my current favorite drugstore blush. If they’re sold out, the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes are very similar but smaller in size.

Essence Cosmetics I ♥ Extreme Volume Mascara

This isn’t necessarily the best mascara out there, but for the price, I seriously am so impressed. I still like the Maybelline Lash Sensational better because it’s a tad more volumizing, but the price keeps increasing – the full price is currently $21.95! I throw out mascaras every 3-4 months so it ends up being very expensive. Essence mascaras, however, are only $5.75 full priced, and $3.45 after the discount.

I highly recommend this because 1) it’s super freaking cheap, 2) it’s long lasting, and 3) it lengthens, volumizes, and separates the lashes really well. Overapplying the mascara could make the lashes look very spidery – they’re that lengthening – so if you’re not into spidery lashes, make sure you don’t overapply! It’s currently sold out online because it has quite a cult following, but check if they still have it in stores!

Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer

I’ve reviewed the Physicians Formula Butter Blushes, which includes swatches of the Butter Bronzer, here. This is hands down the best drugstore bronzer I’ve ever, ever, encountered. Plus it smells like piña colada. This is currently sold out online, but check your local Priceline stores, they might still have it if you’re lucky!

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips All-in-1 Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes

Eyeshadow, highlighter, blush and bronzer in one palette for $14.97? Yes, please! Believe it or not, this highlighter is even better than most of my high end ones. They give the cheeks a very soft, lit-from-within sheen and it’s not chunky at all. They glide on the skin so smoothly!
